Have been using PHP as a tool for som CMS and other back-end systems,
And have been missing a feature about extracting information from .rm (Real Media files)
Just as I can extract header information from JPEG/TIFF formats with the exif_read_data function.

I don't know if this is possible in the first place,
But since the release of the Helix project, which is sort of open source focused, this should be possible.

It would be a nice feature, the Helix project can be found here:

I will look for information about this in the mean time, but since my level of expertice is 1.5 year of PHP experience I would need some time on this.

best regards thomas

This feature request is probably obsolete, and should be closed.  The Real Media file format has a negligible market share at this point.
